I've Been Charged With A DUI. Do I Have A Defense?

Jacksonville, Florida DUI Defense Lawyers Protecting Your Rights

When it comes to drinking and driving, everyone thinks they know the law. All too often they think they are guilty because they were charged. When it comes to drunk driving in Florida, a little knowledge can be a bad thing.

It is not against the law to have a drink or two at dinner or at a bar and then drive home. Just because you had a drink does not mean you were drunk.

It's only a crime to drink and drive if your blood-alcohol level (BAC) is above .08 on a properly administered, properly calibrated breath test machine, blood test or urine test, or if your normal faculties are impaired. Impairment can also occur from prescriptions drugs.

  • Don't plead guilty or no contest to drunk driving until you've had an experienced DUI defense attorney look at your case.
  • Don't pay traffic tickets without talking with a lawyer - by doing so you may be admitting guilt to a serious driving violation.

The penalties are simply too high, even for a first offense, and the penalties accumulate and get worse with every additional conviction. If you have one DUI and then a few serious traffic violations, you risk being classified as a habitual traffic offender. You could lose your license for five years!
